Ghanaian entertainment pundit and artiste manager, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, popularly known as Bullgod, has said that a gospel artiste will not win the Vodafone Ghana Music Award (VGMA) Artiste of Year this year, amidst a massive campaign for Piesie Esther to claim the top prize on Saturday night.
Speaking on TV3’s New Day on Friday, Bullgod predicted that Black Sherif or Stonebwoy will emerge as the winner.
He argued that a secular artiste deserves to win the award this year, and no matter how hard the campaign for gospel musicians is, it won’t make a difference.
“This year, if you look at the works of Stonebwoy, Black Sherif, we will not allow any gospel artiste to win. The Church of Pentecost, Church of Presby, and Anglican can all join they will not win. We are with the world, and everyone in the world is with Lucifer. This is Lucifer against God, and God understands that we will win,” he added.
The annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards ceremony will take place today, Saturday, May 6, 2023, at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Centre.
Alongside Black Sherif and Piesie Esther, the other nominees for the Artiste of the Year award include Stonebwoy, King Promise, Camiddoh, Kidi, Sarkodie, and Joe Mettle.
The VGMA is Ghana’s biggest music awards night, and these eight nominees will be hoping to take home the top award.
